Robert A. "Bob" Hoover, January 24, 1922 – October 25, 2016.

Sad news today, folks, with the passing of Aviation Legend, Robert A. "Bob" Hoover.

A man with a legacy worthy of many book (and movies), he led a life many could only dream of, and he was a gentleman, to boot!

We, here at Totally Jacked Up Aircraft Photos, had the honor to meet the man, and watch his airshow performances, many times.  Unlike many airshow pilots today, with a fraction of Mr. Hoover's talents, Bob always had time for the fans, and was always extremely gracious.

We mourn his loss, and wish him God Speed - Bob, we don't make 'em like you, anymore!
